Admittance level switches works on RF admittance principle. In this principle, the sense electrode and the vessel wall act as two electrodes of a capacitor and a material "shield" is proposed as an insulated electrode that will be added between ground and sense part. The sense and the shield are connected to the same source but they are electrically isolated from each other. Due to this, no RF current is flowing between the shield and the sense electrode. The main purpose of adding a shield is to block the RF current from reaching the vessel wall via the coating of the probe. This design helps the electronic circuitry to differentiate between build-up and the real material. As the level of the vessel increases, the dielectric changes which in turn causes a change in admittance. This change in admittance correctly measured by RF technique.
Huge demand for cement is rapidly increased in several years since the government has announced schemes related to infrastructure because it is a crucial material for construction sites. The production process where raw material is stored, grinded and heated at high temperature.
To handle the severe temperature environment, RF admittance level switch is available with ceramic rod probe with cooling fins to protect the electronics.
The Steel Industry anticipated to increase in the above 2-3 years that deals with 3 main ingredients like Iron Ore, Coke, and Lime. The operation goes through critical conditions where it is sometimes not possible to monitor the level instruments.
Our admittance level switch with remote mounting makes it possible to mount the process sensor up to 15m away from the level instruments. The evaluation unit is installed as per convenience.
The power sector is one of the most diversified sectors in India. Various types of sources are available for power generation. It is considered the backbone of industries to supply power for production operations. Power generated by steam boilers is fuelued by coal and other materials.
The moisture content in coal makes it sticky that sticks on the level sensor's probe during the monitoring operation of level detection. This issue is resolved by our admittance level switch which has build-up immunity.
Depending on the density of bulk solids and process temperature, RF admittance level sensor's probe is differentiated.
